Trying to restore contacts from Verizon Cloud to phone.

I recently did a factory reset on my HTC One m7. Before doing so, I backed up all my contacts and call logs on Verizon Cloud. Using content restore, I restored my call logs but there is not an option to restore contacts. Previously I could see all of my contacts in the contact selection, but now when I go to the tab there is nothing but a blank screen with "Contacts waiting to be backed up." I am worried that my contacts may have been deleted and I am holding off on doing another backup because the content I need is not on my phone. If I go to content restore I see that my call logs are still there so im hoping my contacts are to, but I cant check.

So now I try and log onto my cloud account from My Verizon online and it says "Product Unavailable- unfortunately all the devices on your account are incompatible with Verizon Cloud." But if I click on "Show eligible lines" it says 2 of the 3 lines are compatible and my line has it as a current feature. So I figured I'd try the desktop client and when I go to log in on that it says "We're having problems logging you in. Please try again later." I tried last night and this morning.

My end goal here is to restore my contacts. I am worried they got deleted from the cloud and there is nowhere I can check. If I can get my contact to show up in the cloud app again I hope to restore them to my phone.
